Day 5: San Diego

Day 5 started super duper early. For some of us, it started the day before since they pulled an all nighter. The crew got up at 2:30AM and were ready by 3. The all nighter crew so generously brought us coffee from a 24 hour coffee shop down the street (thanks for providing that, God).…
